Important Nurse Info to read
We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 18th annual “Battle on the Border” Marching Competition hosted at Lowndes High School on Saturday, October 22, 2022. Directors are encouraged to submit their registration as soon as possible. Due to the prelims and finals format, only a limited number of performance slots are available. We cannot accept additional applications once these slots are filled. We will determine performance order by the postmark/timestamp on the application.
Online Band Registration for the 2022 Battle on the Border is available at this link.
Further details on the contest, including classification and adjudication information, can be found here.

Parent Volunteers for Trip to San Antonio
If you would like to be considered as a chaperone for the band trip to San Antonio, TX (April 26-30, 2023), please complete this form. The rate for chaperones is yet to be determined. It could be the same as the student rate but hopefully it will be less. This form is not your commitment to go, it is only to express your interest in serving as a chaperone.
It is with great excitement that I am able to announce that the Georgia Bridgemen will be traveling to San Antonio, TX to participate in the Fiesta Flambeau Parade, “The World’s Largest Illuminated Night Parade” on April 26-30, 2023. It has been a long wait for our Bridgemen to hit the road again and we can’t wait. Please click on the links below to access all of the information for the trip. Please note that you will be making payments directly to Group Travel Network for this event. When you register ALL STUDENTS need to register for a Quad Room. Don’t worry…if you have money in your account or have monies raised from fundraising, we will get that to the tour company on your behalf. Please pay close attention to the deadlines on the forms. Please email Mr. Bowman, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

The easiest way for you to keep up with news and weather changes throughout band camp and the entire season is to download the “BAND” app on your cell phone and join the group “Lowndes High Georgia Bridgemen”. You will provide your name to join (no partial names or nicknames please).
Once you are in the app, click on the gear in the bottom right corner, then click on “my settings” and choose “receive push notifications”. That will give you up-to-the-minute information from Mr. Bowman.
During camps and rehearsals, it is very hard for directors to answer emails, as they are busy with the students every single moment.
Make it a daily habit to check: the band’s website, facebook page, or the “BAND” app. The answers to most of your questions will be posted there. If there is a schedule change (due to last minute thunderstorm), it will be posted in the “BAND” app, as soon as the decision is made.
2022 BAND CAMP: July 18-22 and July 25-29
It’s going to be a great marching season!
